You have to turn off the air suspension to jack the car up or to pick it up with a lift. Very dangerous NOT to do this as the airbags that are an integral part of the air suspension are constantly checked by one of the onboard computers and will adjust whether or not the car is running.
Tow truck failed to turn off air suspension resulting in damaged airbag.
